With the large number of energetic and talented rowers in our Club, we want to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to sign-out boats to perfect their art, enjoy the peace the river brings, burn a few calories...
- Reservation Windows: Individual sign-out blocks are up to 1-hr 45min in duration. There are two components to this.
- On-the-Water Time: This is variable and can be up to 1hr 30min (90 minutes) in duration
- Clean-up Time: A 15-minute buffer is added to each reservation. This will give a rower the opportunity to get the boat/oars off the water, thoroughly clean it to US Rowing standards, and return it to the storage rack.
- Example: I reserve a boat for 60-minutes, and the system will add a 15-min buffer, so my total reservation will be 75-min blocked out.
- Example: I reserve a boat for 1hr 30min, and the system will add a 15-min buffer, so my total reservation will be 1hr 45min blocked out.
- Reservation Quotas: With the anticipated demand for boats, the system has been setup with quota for each rower. A rower will be permitted to:
- Per Day: One reservation per day, with a maximum duration of 1-hour 30-minutes (plus 15 minute buffer)
- Per Week: Four reservations per week
- Boat Levels: As with the old paper system, rowers are asked to sign-out shells which are in alignment with their Certification Level.
- Example: A Level-1 rower may sign-out boats classified as Level-1.
- Example: A Level-2 rower may sign-out boats classified as Level-1 or Level-2.
- Example: A Level-3 rower may sign-out boats classified as Level-1, Level-2 or Level-3.
- No-Show: Rowers are asked to delete their reservations if they are unable to make their scheduled time slot, so that the boat is available to others. After 15-minutes, a reservation is considered a "no show" and a boat may be taken out by another rower.
